PostSubject: Why do we always fail in EXAMS ???   Wed 12 Mar 2008, 04:59

A lot of students in our department keep wondering why they fail or why they get the lowest grades in different exams. A typical student would say: “I have answered all the exam questions and wrote down every piece of information that I had learnt by heart, yet I failed!” To many students, this seems “unfair”. The instructors of all courses, however, have their good reasons.

Needless to say, all students are eager to know the reasons behind their failure to achieve success or to obtain higher grades. Of course they have every possible right to know what went wrong.

While it may be claimed that each subject has its own criterion of evaluation, there are common standards according to which all exams are graded by all instructors. These common standards are part and parcel of the whole process of evaluation.

What are these common standards?

Having been teaching, grading exams, and supervising different subjects in our department and all the non-specialist departments for decades, I have come to a realization that the majority of students who either fail or get the lowest grades are those:

• whose language is very poor
• whose answers are irrelevant
• whose handwriting is unreadable
• whose answers are not well-organised

Of all the above-mentioned “reasons”, the language one needs to be underlined. There is no way to write in poor language and get away with it. Therefore, I strongly advise those whose language is poor to start doing something about it. It would be a grave mistake to over-estimate your language capabilities.

How do I improve my language?

The question of how to improve one’s language has never been easier to answer. In our good old days we had very few options; but the options available nowadays are too many to count. Here are but some pieces of advice:

• Make a habit of reading or listening to the news in English daily (if you don’t have English satellite channels, there are several news channels available on the internet, including:

- http://news.bbc.co.uk/ (BBC NEWS)
- http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/ (CNN NEWS)
- http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/ (ABC NEWS)
- http://library.uncg.edu/news/ (A Comprehensive list of News and Newspapers online)
- http://news.yahoo.com/i/721 (Yahoo News)
- http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/ (News of the World)

** Some of these online news links provide audio and video recordings of the news.

** Reading Arabic news, novels or short stories will also help improve your Arabic language. For a comprehensive list of Arabic newspapers and magazines, click on the following link:

http://arabic-media.com/arabicnews.htm

• Try to concentrate on how your instructors in class pronounce words, use phrases or idioms. Write down any word, phrase or idiom you are not familiar with and consult your instructor whenever appropriate.
• Try to read as much as you can, in all fields of knowledge.
• Attempt a translation of whatever you read or listen to.

Remember that the more you read or write, the more your language improves.

Warning:

Avoid using the so-called “chatting language”, for once it becomes a habit you will always be a victim of this habit.


A suggestion for helping all students

I have a suggestion for those who are willing to help in this vital topic.

Write down the following simple question:

What criterion do you use when grading an exam?

Ask this question to all your instructors. Write down their answers and put them as a reply to this topic. In this way, we will have an overall conclusion, which should be our stepping stone to success.

I see we are not the main reason
i think it is mix of various elements ....

first : it`s us , coz we don`t study hard as demanded or expected

second : it`s professors coz , according to this horrible number of students ... they`ve no time to make thir duty and notice every word we wrote


third : we don`t know the rules of correcting pepiers !!! and for that i`ve wrote this topic

that`s all

i wanna hear your opinions all

this is a wonderful topic,
and as u said ,
its a mix of various elements,
and the main is,
the students are used to a system which is that :
they cant depend on themselves,they are used to study the summery and no thing else,
But the point is,the college is different from the school,
as a college student ,you have to do everything on your own,
u gotta study hard to pass your exams,
thats beside the other elements u mentioned on your posts.
So keep it everybody,and do ur best,
Best of luck

[font=Impact]the main reason is the stresses of parents or their being slack

for example

the agressive parents always telling thier sons to study ... that puts the students in worries and allow the nerval disappointment to be a fundamental substance in thier minds

the slack parents are neglecting their students ... so they are careless of their being succeed or not

but If the one of us has the spirit to prove himself,,,,nothing will effect him.
